Veepstakes: Cheney says Palin VP pick was a "mistake"

Dick Cheney says picking Sarah Palin was the wrong choice four years ago, but he did call her “attractive.”

"That one, I don't think was well handled,” Cheney told ABC of the 2008 veep pick.  "I like Governor Palin,” he said. “I've met her. I know her. She - attractive candidate. But based on her background, she'd only been governor for, what, two years. I don't think she passed that test...of being ready to take over. And I think that was a mistake." (H/T: Political Wire.)

JINDAL: Bobby Jindal was sounding very veep with some red meat, NBC’s Jamie Novogrod reported. “It was ‘Hope and Change’ four years ago,” Jindal said, referring to Obama’s 2008 campaign.  “Now it’s ‘Divide and Blame.’  Everything is somebody else’s fault.”

PAWLENTY: Tim Pawlenty gets cute again coining another punny phrase. He accused President Obama of being “all foam and no beer,” NBC’s Carrie Dann reported. Remember “ObamneyCare”? And he gave a full endorsement to Chick-Fil-A.

PORTMAN: Rob Portman is feeling the pressure to swing Ohio in Romney’s favor, NBC’s Andrew Rafferty reported.

RYAN: Over the weekend, NBC’s Alex Moe reported, Paul Ryan said he thinks Romney can win Wisconsin.
